New Flu

Our household has been hit with the new flu; the kind that shows up as negative when given a flu test. For an indication of how much I dislike going to the doctor's, I didn't even know there was a flu test. Not that it matters since our doc told Dadda monkey this is the 'new flu'. Dadda monkey goes running to the doctor if his temperature fluctuates by a tenth of a degree. I do feel a bit bad for mocking him since I got it the next day and this does suck: chills, fever, shivering, sweating, headache, horrible cough which is tearing up our throats, etc...

The monkey family is out of commission for the next few days. Dadda monkey took the rest of the week off work. One thing I do like about our doctor is that she doesn't push medicine on us, she takes a more holistic approach if possible. We're taking vitamins C and D3 and drinking lots of tea with honey. We are giving the kids Tylenol and taking Nyquil ourselves at night. This also means that work on the deck has been delayed. Hopefully next week I'll be able to post some pictures and report some actual progress. As for now, I'm heading back to bed.


  1. Pei pa koa is pretty decent cough medicine (from herbal as I remembered), great non alcoholic medicine, some western cough medicine are more effective, but this is non drowsy.
